    Re: Pakka Wood

    That valley in the Andes is an interesting one all right. On the other side of the valley, is the mine that provides all the unobtainium for the aerospace industry. This is the stuff is picked up in the mine as a fine powder. When it's put into a form and electricity and heat applied, it becomes a metal that is half the weight of aluminum, tougher than tungstun alloys, and harder than silicon carbide. When electricity is applied with the grain of the metal, it acts like a superconductor, but when the electricity is applied cross-grain, it acts like a perfect insulator. A piece of it that is 1mm thick weights about the same as a sheet of newspaper of the same size, but is so strong it would stop a bullet. The only thing that will cut it is a diamond saw, so most of it is cast into the final dimensions that are needed. Heat doesn't affect it either, so it's great stuff to make rocket nozzles out of. The only problem with it is that human sweat makes it turn back into powder - so it wouldn't be any good for wood carving chisels or knives. If fact, other than rocket nozzles, the only thing that has been found that it can be made into and stay that way for a long time is a state Department of Transportation shovel.

    Self-fertilizing for sure. We plow under the spam after everyone refuses to eat it. Those critters will never make the endangered species list. They are kinda cute though. Jester

    I have a Pakka tree growing in the pasture where my spam graze. Those little critters seem to love that tree and the unique oil that drips from it. Sheesh!!!
